68th Annual Cottage Tour of Art Members' Call for Entries

We've already set up your site and added your admin user and password. You're currently viewing the 'Frontend' of the website, or what the world sees. In order to set-up your call's settings you will need to login to the sites 'Backend'. Here are the steps to get going.

Steps To Get Started

  1. Click the big Login button at the top right to login with your admin username and password you set when setting up the demo call. This will take you the admin 'Backend' where all the configuration options exist.
  2. You can edit this home page by choosing 'Site Customization -> Pages' in the admin backend section to remove all of this intro text.
  3. We added some default categories, sub-categories (media) and pages to your call. You can add or edit the existing content we created via the sidebar links in the admin section.
  4. Click this Tutorial icon in various admin backend sections to see video tutorials on the various settings for those pages.

User Entry Process Tutorial

You can leave this video on your homepage (or embed it on any page) for a quick tutorial your users can watch to help them with the submission process.

We encourage you to explore around and set-up some of the settings. Once you've set some initial submission and registration settings, test out what the process looks like from a user entering submissions to your call.

  1. If logged in, log out of the admin section (click the at the top right) and choose "Logout".
  2. Click the 'Register' button, and fill in the details using a seperate email account than your admin email account.
  3. Once registered, click the 'login' button and the 'Add New Submission' button to add a couple of entries and corresponding images.
  4. Log back in with your Admin credentials to see the submission appear. You can optionaly create a Juror User and login as the Juror to jury the submissions as well.
